Can you help me name three childhood movies based on the briefest snippets of scenes? I have only brief glimpses of scenes from three movies I watched on TV when I was a kid (~35 years ago).

Better the second time around?

Can you think of any re-makes that were superior to the original (or even just as good?) The originals of The Browning Version, The Winslow Boy, ...just as examples, were superior to their re-makes. The first Sabrina was wildly better than the later version. Any suggestions for films whose remakes are well worth watching--or actually better than the original?

What movies would I like?

MovieFilter: I recently watched and enjoyed the film All the Real Girls. Specifically, I seem to enjoy movies that are: slow, subtle, somewhat funny, southern, romantic and a bit long. Any suggestions for more things to fit this bill, or does this one movie meet all of my needs in a way that no other can? Hopefully helpful side note: I saw Up In The Air tonight, and also enjoyed it, mainly for the same sense of calm and subtlety I liked in ATRG.

Horror Twists

Two horror films from about 10 years ago, M. Night Shyamalan's "The Sixth Sense" and Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar's "The Others", basically have the same twist at the end (which I won't describe here). Are there any other films you've seen with the same twist or similar - released either before (ideally) or since?

What are some films with scenes involving locks?

Can you think of films with scenes in which a lock (or locker, safe, handcuffs, etc.) is prominent and integral to the plot? I am helping compile a montage of scenes involving locks (like Dial M for Murder key hiding, or Gaslight desk lock opening). Heist films, people getting out of handcuffs, locks being picked -- these things would all be helpful.
